Motherf*cker

I love this word. I know it's crude, unbecoming, unladylike, inaccurate (in most cases), obscene, etc. Although I know this, I love to say this word. Not in front of small children, the elderly, or easily offended, but I enjoy using it in a variety of ways. Sometimes I sandwich it between other words (stupid motherf*cking jackass) or just as a plain expletive (Motherf*cker!), as a question (what the f*ck, motherf*cker?), and my personal favorite as an observation of something bad or to express awe (motherf*cker. You must say this slowly and with a lot of emphasis). For any0ne who has been around me, you know that I curse like a sailor on shore leave. I'm not exactly proud of this quality (again I ask myself - why hasn't some guy snapped me up yet?) nor am I particularly ashamed of it. I don't curse in professional or school settings and I actually do know how to speak properly, but I find that "motherf*cker" is a versatile word. I realize that my father would be proud of this post and my mom must be rolling at this moment. Oh well. I must admit that neither of my parents use(d) this word, I don't exactly come from a curse free home...

Do you have a favorite curse word? Something you say when you are frustrated?

Check out various definitions and uses of this word

p.s. why the asterik for the "u"? - can't explain it. I love to say it, but don't like to see it in print. Same with sh*t.

I definitely say "sh*t" to myself when I am alone and something goes wrong. So I guess that's the one I go to automatically. I haven't gotten to the point where I use motherf'er, but I think you would be surprised at how my language has deteriorated now that I'm a midwesterner. Even my friends here know to be shocked when they hear me let one slip, but it definitely happens more often than it did when I was in my natural 'southern belle' environment.

Also, one that's popular here (I don't know about where you live) is "douchebag." Some people edit it and say d-bag. I've been known to use both versions on several occasions.

sh*t. Definitely my personal favorite. Although, d*mn it falls into a close second.

Holysh*t usually the word I tend to use when something BIG happens.(Holysh*t Batman) but also have been known to use sonofabi*ch when doing things such as using a hammer and mistaking my thumb for the actual nail. I have since limited my carpentry skills.

Oh my gosh, I totally have a batman reference... I always say "holy doo-doo batman"... My boyfriend cannot stand it- he says that I have said it so much that it is not funny anymore. I have also been known to say "f*ck" at least several times daily. When I asked my boyfriend which curse word I use the most, he responded "all of them". So, I guess I can't choose just one.

"christf--k" or "f--kchrist" are my favorites. If you're going to swear, might as well do it well.

I go for just plain ol' "fuck", myself. Simple, elegant, gets the job done.

(Oddly, though, I tend to avoid the adjectival form. Dunno why.)
